JAKARTA: A Russian tourist was mauled to death by a crocodile in a popular diving site in Eastern Indonesia, an official said Saturday.

The body of Sergey Lykhvar was discovered on Tuesday in Raja Ampat islands of West Papua, four days after he was reported missing.

Local search and rescue head Prasetyo Budiarto said Lykhvar was reported missing to the authorities last week, one day after he left to snorkel around the remote Minyaifun island.

Budiarto told AFP that rescuers spotted a large saltwater crocodile trailing behind Lykhvar’s body when he was discovered.

“We believe he was killed by a crocodile judging from the missing body parts and the extent of his injuries,” he said.
